    It's the final day - this contest will close at 11:59 PM Thursday night - Winners will be selected by random drawing on Sunday. Winners will be contacted via private message on these forums and then announced on the site.

    To enter for today (Thursday August 14, 2008) - you simply have to put in a reply to this thread to have your name put in the hat.

    20 lucky winners will receive one of the WWI cards that were given in the goody bags in Paris. The codes on the card will give you an exclusive in game Tyrael the Archangel pet and the 2nd key is a beta code to get in the WotLK beta (at some point - can't guarantee immediate access).

    Note: Stratics staff members aren't eligible to win but are welcome to respond to the questions and participate in the thread.

    Today's Post:

    The event is over, the celebration ceremony is finally taking place and you're finding yourself elated at the last several days of participating and watching such an event where the whole world comes together and puts aside their differences and stops their fighting and prejudices.

    You sing a few songs with your mates and partake in some alcoholic beverages as you watch the final show take place. You can't help but think if the world will be improved or if the fighting will continue. You think to yourself will we rise up and take the challenge on improving ourselves like these athletes have shown us these last several days? Or will we fall back to our old ways for another 2 years before the next event? When a couple of guys who were up to no good starting making trouble in my neighborhood. I got in one little fight and my mom got scared. She said "You're moving with your auntie and uncle in Bel Air". I whistled for a cab and when it came near the license plate said fresh and it had dice in the mirror. If anything I can say this cab is rare but I thought "Nah forget it - Yo homes to Bel Air!". I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8 and I yelled to the cabbie "Yo Homes smell ya later!" I looked at my kingdom I was finally there, to sit on my throne as the Prince of Bel Air.

    Well I think the second the finishing cerimonies ended everyone would enter a drunken brawl and then I would say "Oh look nothing changed!" By the time the world isn't drunk everyone would have forgotten about the games and the peace in its time up untill two years pass and there is another event.

    Edit 1: Pretty sure the Question is: Do you think the Azeroth Olympics have inspired the people of Azeroth to give up on war for atleast another 2 years or do you think that nothing has changed and now there is nothing preventing the war to continue.

    Edit 2:Cogratulations to the 20 people who stole I mean.... Won my spot in beta.

    Fighting continues, no rising, falling; "... I begged and pleaded with her day after day, but she packed my suitcase and sent me on my way. She gave me a kiss and then she gave me my ticket. I put my walk-man on and thought I might as well kick it. First class, yo, this is bad. Drinking an orange juice out of a champagne glass. Is this what the people of Bel-Air livin' like? Hmm, this might be alright. ..."

    We're no strangers to love
    You know the rules and so do I
    A full commitment's what I'm thinking of
    You wouldn't get this from any other guy
    I just wanna tell you how I'm feeling
    Gotta make you understand
    Never gonna give you up
    Never gonna let you down
    Never gonna run around and desert you
    Never gonna make you cry
    Never gonna say goodbye
    Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you
    We've know each other for so long
    Your heart's been aching
    But you're too shy to say it
    Inside we both know what's been going on
    We know the game and we're gonna play it
    And if you ask me how I'm feeling
    Don't tell me you're too blind to see
    Never gonna give you up
    Never gonna let you down
    Never gonna run around and desert you
    Never gonna make you cry
    Never gonna say goodbye
    Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you
    (Repeat Chorus)
    Give you up, give you up
    Give you up, give you up
    Never gonna give,
    Never gonna give, give you up
    Never gonna give,
    Never gonna give, give you up
    (Last four lines repeat)
    I just wanna tell you how I'm feeling
    Gotta make you understand
    (Chorus times three)

    All i can say is, As long as we continue to forget the past we will continue to repeat it. So with that said Hopeing for a change and peace is nice but that is all it is hope and i fear that compete peace is a long ways off from what will happen.

    Good luck to everyone and grats to the winners.
  34. Exellent :D see ya in 2 years :B

    People are stupid. We continue fighting. Hell, I'm stupid.

    And this is my least intelligent post in this series of oh-god-give-me-that-beta-key-you-bastards. I don't know what to respond to this! (Nevermind, I'm in anyway)

    I did get a taste for watching some Prince in Bel Air now, though.

    Most likely all the people that didnt get into the event after failing to get in will be waiting outside to jump all the ones that did :D

    Or a neighbour will shout "keep the noise down" from all the singing and this will cause a riot and were back where we started.

    I wasn't expecting that! However, I would have to take the very pessimistic approach and presume that things will slowly revert to what they were. The weight of the world was on the balance during the Hyjal encounter. We were to presume that The Third War would be the very last; and yet we have begun to see a dangerous road reappearing. It would seem, for now, we are doomed to repeat our mistakes.

    I leave you with an amusing quote from the show, because it's totally related:

    Hilary: "Carlton told a joke."
    Will: "No, Carlton is a joke."

    And good luck to everybody!
